- Rest In Peace -

Mr. NORRIS WASHINGTON BENNETT

[Feb. 17th 1935 - May 5th 2020]  

Sending much love to each and all of you as we, The Ebony Hillbillies share our condolences with you and the family for our dearly ascended musical brother and "rebel soldier", Mr. Norris Washington Bennett. We miss him dearly. God bless! 

Norris W. Bennett - a world-class solo performer and a member of the acclaimed NYC based African-American String Band - THE EBONY HILLBILLIES. His unique claw hammer styled 5-string Banjo frailing and Mountain Dulcimer playing with an angelic soulful heartwrenching vocal helped to share America's great musical legacy to audiences all over the world. Inspiring many to rediscover their own American cultural roots and America's first (Pop)-ular Band - The Old Time String Band tradition consisting of violin banjo washboard jug or stand up bass which predates Jazz and many other classic American genres. Mr. Bennett will be utterly missed.

 
REST IN PEACE
Mr. NORRIS WASHINGTON BENNETT 
[FEB. 17TH 1935 - MAY 5TH 2020]
